New Resource: Biosimilars Education Course for Clinicians
The American Society of Hematology (ASH) has added to its eLearning platform a new educational course titled “Biosimilars: A New Era of Hematology/Oncology Management Considerations”.
A synopsis provided by AHS:
“With the increasing entry of biosimilars into clinical practice it is important to equip and prepare hematology/oncology clinicians with information that can provide a context for the appropriate use of biosimilars. This program looks to increase clinician awareness, knowledge, and confidence regarding the role of biosimilars in clinical care, which has the potential for a notably positive impact on patient access to biologic therapy, as well as cost of care.”
Targeted to “hematologists, hematologist/oncologists, oncologists, and others who are managing patients with neoplasms and need to stay updated on developments related to biosimilars,” the resource provides a “two-part, audio-guided online course [that] presents practical, foundational information on biosimilars, while also addressing issues and barriers most commonly encountered in the clinical setting.”
